to discuss a possible drawdown with u.s. secretary general. for now, though the fighting continues. israeli air strikes killed nearly 40 people today, groups in gaza respondented by shooting nearly 100 rockets in israel. and on the israeli side of the border things appeared remarkably calm today. this picture has caused a stir online. it shows israelis watching passively as in-coming missiles sail over head. so why to israelis feel so comfortable out in the open as missiles fly above them? because of something called the iron dome. it's a defense system that uses radar to detect in-coming rockets and determine where they will land. if it is headed towards a populated area the gunner shoots the missile out of the sky. it is particularly good at detecting the smaller, older rockets that the palestinians use. iron dome has had an incredible 85% successful rate against the 300 rockets the palestinians have fired. the gulf missiles intercepted less than 10% of their target. iron dome has always made a huge difference. as of today, israel has only reported three deaths. in

of us thought it would. we sort of mourned its passage out of no sir sal nostalgia but if its rescued is there any chance it will be on the backs of the workers. >> i'm sure there will be a flashback to 2012 bain-type situation where the jobs are shipped overseas. you could see some corporation that cares about its employees take over and try to use it some kind of green or spit balling here guys. >> that's the thing. you don't know exactly what is going to happen. i'll let you have the last word on hostess knowing your eating habits. >> i'm not big on pastries. i noticed the shelves were empty the day after they were saying that, but i wasn't going to buy it any way. if its blaming the workers of hostess, the strike destroyed hostess, now you're not going to have the cupcakes any more. it's starting up the fear and losing things like your holidays. i like going to store on thanksgiving. >> but you don't think about the people who work there not making double time. when we come back on "the young turks," we're going to go back to the military and talk to you about the invisible war st
